The PSA says your workplace health & safety comes first! – June 2017 (PDF version)

We know that, as Housing Services staff, you face challenges every day that could pose hazards and risks to your health, safety and wellbeing, in particular the counter staff being confronted daily with disgruntled clients. There is more that can be done than being skilled in Customer Service and Dealing with Difficult Customers.
